Ornaments are really sentimental in our household, especially all of the hand made ones. I have handmade ornaments made by my great aunt and my mom that I just adore. We also have a lot of ornaments with the pictures of the kids on them and the year they were made. I’m a total sucker for these types of ornaments. I just love pulling them out of the Christmas ornament box every year and looking back at how the kids have grown. It’s truly something to see the change every year. Well, this year I came up with DIY picture ornaments that you can personalize yourself with your choice of colors. This project can easily be created to make lasting memories for years to come. Let’s get started and see just how easy these DIY Picture ornaments really are.
